This is David Carradine's best performance since Bound for Glory.
27 November 2004 | by mew27159See all my reviews

Easily David Carradine's best performance since Bound for Glory. (And yes, he's even better than in Kill Bill vols 1 & 2.) David plays a Willie Nelson type country singer who finally finds success late in his career. This film really showcases David's unique sense of comic timing and his very fine singing and songwriting skills. The wry and somewhat world weary Carradine persona fits this character to a tee. I can't think of any other actor who could have played this role so effortlessly. This movie was just a pleasant surprise all around. Top-notch writing, fine performances, solid direction, and great original songs allow me to strongly recommend this film to Carradine fans, music fans, and to anybody who just enjoys good films.
